According to a report from the New York Daily News Larry Brown has said that he will not be the Knicks coach next season and plans to end his coaching career in Detriot and not in New York .

This is very disapointing as Larry Brown seemed like the perfect coach to restore the Knicks franchise with his great track record, his lifelong desire to coach the Knicks and his respect for Isiah Thomas...the Knicks may need to push harder for Phil Jackson.

Brown apparently told the NYPOST last week that he won't coach the Knicks despite that the NYPOST printed a story talking up speculation that Brown would be the Knicks head coach next season.

Looks like Isiah may now need to look beyond Phil Jackson because with Larry out the picture and with Phil seeming to not want to coach next season the Knicks might have to look for a new 'savior.'

Any thoughts on other possible coaching candidates that have been over-shadowed by Phil and Larry?
